“The Big Green”

Saturday afternoon I made a Big Green Protein Smoothie for a snack and it was delicious!

Ingredients:

1 big bunch (handful) of fresh spinach
7 strawberries
1 scoop vanilla protein powder- I used fitmixer “Sculpt” but any would work!
2 tbsp flaxseed meal
4-5 ice cubes
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tsp honey

Mix all ingredients in blender until smooth!

Now you have your big green full of protein!

After crossfit I had my fitmixer protein shake. Straight vanilla which was pretty tasty.  The only thing I don’t like about the fitmixer “sculpt” protein is that is has 6 grams of sugar whereas the Beverly International UMP only has 1 gram.

A little later I drank my fitmixer aminos– grape this time and it was tasty!

Saturday was cleaning day for us which was not fun!

I had to get my house in order for the Wildtree  party that I am having Sunday! It should be a lot of fun!

I finally got my Christmas tree down, thank God! Talk about late!

Lunch

After cleaning for a couple of hours I was starving!  I made a Spinach salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, and a hard-boiled egg.  Talapia for some added protein and fruit on the side 🙂

The Skinny on Hard Boiled Eggs

Source

I wrote previously about how my hard-boiled eggs were so hard to peel and half of the egg came off every time, even though the yolks looked perfect!

My eggs were actually easy to peel this time!  I read that eggs are easier to peel when they are “older” eggs, so they have been in your refrigerator about a week or so.

I got my eggs the same day that I boiled them this time, so I think it is just a hit or miss!  Who knows!?!

Your thoughts…

Dinner

I was planning on making mini turkey meatloaf muffins but I made tacos with my ground turkey instead!

I made mine on a low carb wrap, so mine was more like a mini taco burrito.

 Grocery Cart Dilemma

Ok, I don’t know if this has happened to any of you out there, but EVERY time I go to the grocery store, I MEAN EVERY TIME…..I get a fu***d  up cart!!

This is a normal grocery cart, one of which I never get!

Usually it has a bad wheel…

If I turn left, my cart goes right, If I turn right, my cart goes left…. I mean I was really struggling today, and my abs already hurt from crossfit…I was using a lot of my body to get this cart around the dang  store.

I usually don’t realize the bad cart situation until I have a cart that is pretty much full!  This should count as a second workout right?

This is what I hope for next time!…
